stocks for lr hunting

Gentlemen,
I'm building a couple long range rigs, and have to decide on stocks. I'm just curious as to what everybody is using/likes. Post what you like brand/model and pictures if you want. I'm going to use y this as kind of a poll and use what style/brand gets more mentions.
This will be for hunting only some carry, and some prone work.
Thank you in advance.

I like accurate innovations for wood laminate, and B&C for synthetic.

I personally like the choate tactical stock @ a shade under 4 lbs, it sports an aluminum V-block, a built in anshultz rail, side mounted sling studs, is built like a tank but balances well and makes carrying a heavy rifle a joy. Great from prone and still real decent of hand. At $220 off the shelf any day of the weak, I love em and look no further. There are slightly lighter ones out there but for functionality and frugality, they are hard to beat.

I do have a stockade woodchuck on one of mine and do like it, but just seeing about trying something new that i might like better.

Hey,
How about: Manners Composite Stocks

I think you'll find that there are just going to be many differend recomendations instead of just a lot of the same one.

Happy shootin'

Manners, Accuracy International and McMillan are the names in high end tactical stocks. That said I ended up with a Greybull Precision stock. At the time I couldn't justify spending that much on the high end ones. I am pleased with the greybull stock.
